[laughter] i'd like to thank ali and the forum and all of you for the invitation to be here today to say a few words. and to, um, i'd also like to thank all of the other members of the panel here for their or contributions. i'm here to represent the conference of catholic bishops. it's known sometimes by just usccb. the conference has been engaged in this issue of immigration reform for decades. we look forward to this debate and urge our elected officials not to lose this opportunity to reform a broken system. there are several areas the bishops will focus upon in this debate. first, there must be an automatic path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented. we cannot and must not, excuse me, fall short of citizenship for the undocumented. where instead they receive legal status but no chance to become americans. we should not sanction a permanent undercl
of the puzzle? >> that reminds me when i was in graduate school i went to study foreign policy and was right around the time they balanced the budget and i thought my gosh what am i going to do? so i realized the long-term problems were still there and i had to make a choice whether social security or health care and it was easy, social security is easy supply jumped into becoming a social security expert because health care is so hard. they're really is no other issue at the core of all of this. we don't know the answers and the best thing that we can do right now is putting in place as many different attempts to control health care costs and evaluating what works so we don't with a fork or not we've seen the costs coming down, and that could be in anticipation that could be temporary and permanent, so it's better data gathering the intra-asian, analyzing it and then figuring out what's working and doing more of that. one of the important things that happened in the changes that were just made or the exchanges on health care. it does give you the room to put an increase in the medicare ag w
